WINNIPEG - The longest home stand in Winnipeg Jets franchise history came to an end Tuesday night, it just wasn't the end the Jets were looking for.
Dustin Brown scored the eventual game winner, as the Los Angeles Kings beat the Jets 4-3 at Bell MTS Place, dropping the Jets record to 35-16-9.

Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien, and Patrik Laine scored for the Jets, who dominated the opening 20 minutes, outshooting the Kings 16-5.
But that was when the script flipped, as the Kings would score twice on the power play in the second, and twice more at even strength in the third to improve to 33-22-5.
"They picked up their speed a little bit. Some untimely penalties, our penalty kill is leaking oil right now. So just wrong penalties at the wrong time," said Wheeler, who extended his point streak to six games with a goal and an assist.
"You can't expect to be up 3-0 every time at home in the first period. It's just not going to happen. In your building, you're up 1-0 on a team that played last night, that game should be where you like it."
